My kids loved watching the guys blow molten glass into vessels - for ~30 minutes! Stuff here is expense, even the 2nds but the show is worth stopping for - close by breweries and restaurants to walk to/from.

No parking, and no one greeted us as we walked around. We arrived at noon and were asked and were told the next glass-blowing demo was at 2:30. Not wanting to wait that long, we left. Items on the shelves were pretty but very expensive.More
